Disable User Account Control (UAC) the Easy Way on Win 7 or Vista

Note: Disabling UAC will lead to a less secure system, so be warned.
Disable UAC on Windows Vista
Open up Control Panel, and type in “UAC” into the search box. You’ll see a link for “Turn User Account Control (UAC) on or off”:


On the next screen you should uncheck the box for “Use User Account Control (UAC)”, and then click on the OK button.


You’ll need to reboot your computer before the changes take effect, but you should be all done with annoying prompts.
Disable UAC on Windows 7
Windows 7 makes it much easier to deal with UAC settings, and in fact you don’t have to completely disable UAC if you don’t want to. Just type UAC into the start menu or Control Panel search box.

You can simply drag the slider up or down, depending on how often you want to be alerted.

Windows 7 UAC Settings

If you drag it all the way down to the bottom, you’ll have disabled it entirely.

Disable Autoplay of Audio CDs and USB Drives

I find it very annoying when I go home from work and plug my laptop into my external hard drive… The autoplay window always pops up and asks me what I want to do with the files, which may be fine the first time, but definitely isn’t after a year of that.

To get to the configuration screen for this setting, go to Start Menu \ Run and type in:


You will see the Group Policy window. You should select Administrative Templates \ System in the tree view:

You will see an item in the right side pane called “Turn off Autoplay”

Double click the item, and set the radio button to Enabled, and change the “Turn off Autoplay on” to All Drives.

Now you should be safe from the autoplay monster.

Creating IM Bot

This quick tutorial will show you how to develop your own functional IM bot that works with Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, Windows Live and all other popular instant messaging clients.

To get started, all you need to know are some very basic programming skills (any language would do) and web space to host your “bot”.

For this example, I have created a dummy bot called “insecure” that listens to your IM messages. To see this live, add to your GTalk buddy list and start chatting.

IM Bot

If you like to write a personal IM bot, just follow these simple steps:-

Step 1: Go to and register a new account with a bot.

Step 2: Now it’s time to create a bot which is actually a simple script that resides on your public web server.
It could be in PHP, Perl, Python or any other language.

Example Hello World bot:
The example below illustrates just how easy it is to create a bot.
This example is coded in PHP.


switch ($_REQUEST['step']) {
case 1:
echo "Hi, what's your name?";
case 2:
echo "Hi " . $_REQUEST['value1'] . ", where do you live?";
case 3:
echo "Well, welcome to this hello world bot, " . $_REQUEST['value1'] . "<br>from " . $_REQUEST['value2'] . ".<reset>";


Step 3: Once your script is ready, put it somewhere on your web server and copy the full URL to the clipboard.

Step 4: Now login to your imified account, paste the script URL

Screen Name:
Bot Script URL:

Step 5: Add that im bot your friends list. That’s it.

This is a very basic bot but the possibilities are endless.

For instance, you could write a bot that will send an email to all your close friends via a simple IM message. Or you could write one that will does currency conversion.

Get ready for the fantasy, Bumptop to give Google Chrome OS a 3D Desktop?

Bumptop is a software which allows Windows and Mac users to create realistic 3D environments on their desktops for handling files and folders. Desktop has not really changed much for most operation systems. Most of them still serve as a stationary jump off point for folders and files. BumpTop allowed users to use the 3D desktop in interesting ways.

Below is a snapshot of a typical desktop using BumpTop.

Visit the Bumptop website which is makes an interesting announcement.

Bumptop is not letting people download the software which converts the desktop into a 3d environment. Also it announces as it has been bought by Google it will not be supporting Mac and Windows any more. :-P

This pretty much points to Bumptop being used to give Chromium OS a killer desktop. Google probably might use this sort of software as a great interface for tablets which use Chrome OS. The first official release of the Chromium OS is supposed to be later in the year but there is not real clarity on it.

Bumptop had showed its awesome 3D desktop which could be used with a touch screen.

Complete set of IP tools in one place

If you are a website admin you will be aware of many websites and services to carry out different ways to ping your website or even your computer or the IP provided to you by your ISP. Also there are many online tools which help you carry out a ‘whois‘ query on any URL.

IP Tools is a great website which has all things you require when it comes to looking up and playing around with IP addresses.

  • IPTools has a large suite of IP related tools. Some of the most obvious ones are it looks up your IP and displays it.
  • The other obvious tools included are looking up Ping, IP to Country, trace route and whois look-up.
  • There are other neat tools which allowed me to to email address and check if the domain offers free internet. Very useful if you see an email id with a interesting domain and want to check if the domain allows free email service.

Check if URL is safe to visit

If you are a net addict then you probably surf and look up hundreds of URLs over a week. Ofcourse many domains are visited regularly and hence you are quite sure about these links from a safety point of view. But it is always a good idea to see if the link you are visiting is safe or not.

  • URL Void actually looked up a URL you enter and checks if it is clean or infected using Web Of Trust (WOT), McAfee SiteAdvisor, Google Diagnostic and Norton SafeWeb to check it up.
  • URL Void also displays the websites IP Address, IP Country, IP Host and other detections of infections.
  • URL Void also shows us the latest infected websites and also a has sections where it shows the latest attacks caused with URL on its blog.

Personally I would have liked this service to had a add-on or extension instead of it being a place on the net where I had to enter the URL manually. I still like URL Void for its various network of services checking a web url. 

Do try out URL Void for a safe internet experience and do let me know if you are aware of better alternatives through your comments.

Monitor energy consumed for computers using Joulemeter

Joulemeter is a new application from Microsoft to monitor the consumption of power in computers. This application was released by Microsoft on 19 May 2010 and is currently in alpha-test state.

  • Joulemeter is designed to track the power and total energy consumption of running computers. This light-weight application will always reside in your memory, even if not started manually.
  • The statistics reports the power being consumed, average power, the total energy consumed and the total volume of CO2 released. The interface is so simple and neat. More developments can be expected in the stable version.
  • The statistics provides details about base power for running PC, power consumed for CPU, hard disk and monitor.
  • The uncalibrated model only gives the approximate statistics. For getting accurate measurements, calibration is necessary. But as far as I am concerned, the calibration always failed in all three attempts made. This may be due to some bug which is hoped to be fixed in the stable version.
The approximate statistics of power being consumed is calculated in watts (W) and the total energy consumed in calculated in kilowatt-hours (kWh). 1 kWh is commonly referred as 1 unit of energy. It is the same unit as read on the energy meters at home.

Joulemeter is handy and consumes very less memory. It gives the basic idea of power consumption in computers.

Hide a file or folder in Linux?

Hiding a folder is a simple way of keeping prying eyes away from your private documents. From a human point of view it’s a good solution; what you can’t see, you don’t know you want. Encrypting a folder can have the opposite effect. The folder is visible and if access is attempted, the need to enter a password positively shouts the message that someone is trying to hide something. This probably explains why there are so many commercial utilities that claim they can securely hide folders.

Hiding a file is pretty simple in Linux ! Its just one step away 

Steps to hide a folder :

  1. Select the folder you wish to hide and rename it by either clicking F2 in keyboard or by a right click -> Rename..
